She’s willing to do anything to follow her plan.

Debutante Alice Knight is ready for her first social season in London. She’s determined to impress society and her mother with an affluent match, at last escaping her past and embracing a future of her own making.

Peter Strauss, an American reporter visiting England, isn’t exactly what Alice had in mind. However, his friendship proves invaluable as Alice faces the challenges of her debut. Almost immediately, she attracts the attention of a well-born gentleman—perfect save for the simple fact that he’s not a Christian.

The life she longs for is finally at her fingertips, but between her own heart and the convictions of her faith, she isn’t sure she ought to grasp it.

Book 3 of the Chronicles of Alive and Ivy series. 


Kellyn Roth is a Christian historical women’s fiction & romance author from North-Eastern Oregon who has independently published multiple novels, the most notable being The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series. You should definitely call her Kell.

Kell lives on family-owned property outside an unmemorable but historical town with her parents, two little brothers, arbitrary cat, precious border collies, a dozen cows, and lots of chickens. She also possesses a classic, vintage aesthetic which does not at all speak to her country girl side, but such is life.

When not writing, Kell likes to blog, teach writing to her various students, have day jobs which allow her to keep her car properly insured, and spend lavish amounts of money on Dairy Queen french fries. She also likes to talk about Keira Knightley and her own books way too much.


First of all, to get it out of the way - this one gets a solid 5/5 from me. That's all. 

I absolutely love this series, and At Her Fingertips definitely does not disappoint. The thought that's put into the historical context of the book is so rich that I learn something almost every time I pick up one of these books. The characters are vibrant and hop right off the pages.  The Christian elements are important and leave the readers with something to chew on.  I have to say that Peter is an absolute dear, as is Alice. And Gibson...well, I'd like to have a little chat with him. The story itself is compelling and thought-provoking; I ended up reading it in about two sittings even though I planned to read it a bit more slowly than that. It's attention-grabbing and maintains your interest pretty much from start to finish, and you'll find yourself rooting for the good guys, curious about the motives of the morally-gray, and wanting to yell at the bad guys -- just the blend I enjoy. (Plus, the book mentions horses and does so with accuracy, so that's always a bonus in my eyes.) 
If you enjoy historical fiction or women's fiction (or both), you'll love this book.  And if you haven't checked out the rest of the series, you'll want to do that too. This book is fine as a standalone, but you'll just want to read the rest of them too. Trust me.
